Proud to be A Roughrider!
From Rob Hart, Superintendent at Liberty Hill, " I have attached a photo that was taken at the soccer game last night by the Austin American Statesman. It has gone viral around LH and is one of our favorites from the Statesman’s photo gallery. It is one of the best displays of sportsmanship captured in a photo. It was a pleasure competing with the class program that you have and congrats on a great season. Hopefully we can meet up again next year in the same arena."
From James Hockenberry, "It was a remarkable performance last night. A great season for an exceptional group of young men and their coach."

Roving Chef at Center ISD
Roving Chef is a program started by SFE giving students the chance to get into the kitchen and learn some basic kitchen skills along with nutritional information. The students pictured are CES students. They had a blast touring the kitchen, making individualized pizzas and learning about nutrition and physical activity!

Pride in our Roughrider Facilities
Center ISD appreciates the display of support by the community over the past few years as we have improved several of our buildings and facilities. We are especially pleased that many of our patrons use Roughrider stadium, the tennis courts, and surrounding areas as a place of gathering, fellowship, and physical activity. We are proud of the quality, appearance, and the educational experiences each provide.
In order for our facilities to retain its quality for our students and community members both now and in the future, special care and attention to the usage regulations must be followed. The life expectancy of the stadium track and field, the tennis courts, and other school properties will be extended if the regulations are followed.
Currently, the facilities are being abused and the regulations are being ignored by many. To be more specific, strollers, bikes, skateboards, gum, colored drinks, and pets are not allowed on the stadium track, field, and tennis courts. Center ISD is asking you to join us in our effort to keep our facilities clean, well maintained, and accessible for all to enjoy. If the abuse and rapid deterioration of our investment in quality facilities continues, the district may be faced with the difficult decision of closing the stadium to the public.
Please keep in mind that the City of Center has constructed wonderful parks and recreation options, including a superb walking trail, for our community to enjoy and use. Again, please help us by encouraging others to respect the regulations that are in place at our outdoor venues.

Resources for K-8 Revised Math TEKS Available to Educators and Parents
A valuable list of free resources is available to help both teachers and parents transition to the revised math Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS.)
Since the revised math TEKS for high school students are not scheduled for implementation until the following school year in 2015–2016, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) resource page is currently specific to K–8 TEKS math resources only. The free TEA resource webpage may be accessed here.
Center ISD Special Services department believes every child deserves a quality education, one in which they can learn and achieve to high standards alongside their peers. This includes successfully transitioning to reach their post secondary education goals.
We are pleased to offer the following information from the Texas Education Agency in collaboration with Statewide Leadership in Secondary Transition and Post School Results at Education Service Center Region 11. The Texas Transition and Employment Guide has been posted to their website and is located at www.transitionintexas.org. The purpose of this guide is to provide information on statewide services and programs that assist students with disabilities in the transition to life outside of the public school system. On this site you will find resources for students, parents, educators and agency resources.
